Our first farmer’s market is only 3 days away! It’s so hard to explain the range of emotions Hans and I are feeling. We’re excited to meet lots of people and talk to them about food and the farm and hear their stories and recipe ideas! We’re anxious about how we’re going to get everything harvested, transported and set up in time (you should see us trying to put up the tent)! We’re frustrated there aren’t more things ready to be picked but hopeful what we do bring to the market will be high quality and the absolute freshest! Stop by and say hi! We’d love to meet you!
Here’s what we’ll have this Saturday:
Potted tomatoes, peppers, herbs and perennial flowes
Free Range Eggs
Here's a tasty idea for weekend brunch using fresh PrairiErth eggs and our green garlic!
Green Garlic Scrambled Egg Toasts
· 1 stalk green garlic for every 3 eggs
· milk or cream
· dense wheat bread or levain
Chop green garlic like you would a scallion. Feel free to use all the green part as well as the white part. Beat eggs and add 2 tablespoons milk or cream to eggs. Slice bread thinly and leave near toaster.
Sauté green garlic in desired amount of butter over medium flame for a minute or two. Add beaten egg mixture to pan and reduce flame to its lowest possible setting. Stir constantly. As the eggs heat up they will start to steam a little and maybe stick to the bottom of the pan. Add some salt and pepper. Take the pan off direct heat to slow the process down. . The longer it takes, the better it'll taste. It should take at least 10 minutes to cook 3-5 eggs this way. Throw the bread in the toaster. As the eggs finally congeal, spoon onto toast, and cut to desired size.
